  9. Nanny,

    I miss you so much and will never forget those beautiful blue eyes and that gorgeous smile of yours. You had the kind of personality that draws people towards you and makes them feel safe and happy and like nothing else matters in the world when they are with you. I know that you are in a better place now and you are not suffering anymore. You will always be the best grandma in the world and I will continue to live on with you in my thoughts and prayers every single day. I love you soooo much,

    Tarah
